A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Jupiter in Cancer, so the description given here may change for you if your Jupiter is although in the sign of Cancer but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Jupiter can do in Cancer without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Jupiter is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Elderly People. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Cancer is 4th sign of Zodiac Belt, hence it represents the things represented by 4th house like Mother, Mother's care, Emotions and Nourishment etc. Cancer is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras namely Punarvasu, Pushyami and Ashlesha. Cancer's lord is Moon.
It is said that one well positioned Jupiter and its Mahadasha in midlife is enough for a person to lead a good life. And when it comes to the good positions of Jupiter, nothing can be better than one in Cancer. Here, it is exalted. Jupiter is exalted at 5 degrees of Cancer. Now, why in the world Sage Parashara decided Cancer as the sign of Jupiter's exaltation out of all 12 zodiac signs? Jupiter is the planet of knowledge, wisdom and spirituality. In one sentence, it is holding all the virtuous things within it. Jupiter is also the sign of teaching and in the sign of Cancer (sign of emotions and mother's nourishment), it reaches its pinnacle as divine teachings are being given with emotions and mother's care. If we see, our 1st teacher is always our mother and our most favorite teachers were always those who taught us with emotions and care, who were ready to give an extra time.
So, this is what happens when Jupiter is in the sign of Cancer. Knowledge, Wisdom and Teachings know no boundaries. This person is all about seeking knowledge and spreading knowledge and he doesn't care to whom he is giving knowledge. He is like an over-burdened cloud which is desperate to shower. As Jupiter is all about expansion of things, here emotions get expanded and these people become too emotional. They are too attached with their knowledge and belief. Here, beliefs also get expanded and these people read about other religions and beliefs too. These are the people who ask about questions like what is life's purpose and why we are here? Overall, THE BEST POSITION OF JUPITER.
Now, the question comes about the level at which Jupiter is going to give good results. So, it again would depend on the Nakshatra Jupiter is sitting in. If Jupiter is in Punarvasu Nakshatra, then it is in its own Nakshatra, so very good position. If Jupiter is in Pushyami Nakshatra, then it will be directed by the condition of Saturn in horoscope as Pushyami's lord is Saturn. Again, If Jupiter is in Ashlesha Nakshatra, then it is impacted by Mercury as Nakshatra lord.
Also, as Cancer is ruled by Moon, we need to look at Moon's position. Moon's position will actually determine that how Jupiter is going to behave in Cancer. Again, horoscope should be judged in its totality.
Tomorrow, Jupiter in Leo.
